IF you don't shop here how about........

The Green Pavilion wants to promote eco-friendly shopping. Ethical and fair trade principles along with organic and recycled products help our earth and everyone on it. Really! Read 'what is fairtrade?' and 'what is ethical trade?' and 'what is certified organic?' when you have some time. Also "fair trade why bother?" is a simple explanation why fair and ethical trade is a good idea.

Anyway, if you decide not to purchase here please consider these other great online stores. Your purchasing decisions have the power to change and better our planet. You really are voting with your dollars. Happy shopping!
